Sierras are a gulf fish in the mackerel family and the Spanish mackerel tribe. The illustration above depicts a fish no larger than seven inches, but they can reach three feet and weight up to ten pounds.

Sierras are common throughout the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea. They are not endangered, but they are not especially prized for eating. The bones of the sierra are numerous but very apparent and easily removed.

This sierra is fresh and gutted. After the reference photo was taken, he was fried whole and served at Parche de Alex by Alex himself. Parche de Alex is a three-cabana, beach-side parche on Playa Blanca on Isla Baru near Cartegena in Colombia.
